When taking everything into account, Samsung is the leader in SSD performance and innovation imho.
Agree, I would list the top 2 as:
1. Samsung
2. Seagate
I have 2 Seagate Firecuda Hybrid drives that are wicked fast, when I next go to full SSD I will either go Seagate or Samsung.

I had used Samsung EVO 850. Great Performance as promised. Currently I use PNY which is also great on my laptop with dual booted.
How about Samsung Pro? Compare with Evo?
You get better speed and 10 years warranty for pro series. Samsung EVO gives only 3-5 years depending on the model. But price is also higher.

I have installed on my old laptop the Samsung EVO 850 for over 2 years now.
The increase of speed will give you a big smile.
It has 5 years warranty and i am using it in SATA II connection,if you have SATA III you will take the full advantage of the SSD.
So far this SSD is running very good without any decrease in performance ( i tested last month and disk health is 100% ).
That's great for me because i always install and uninstall software and i was concerned that this behaviour will cause
problem much sooner that i was expected.
A second good choice would be Corsair.
Some of my friends are using it and they are very happy with its performance. Also Corsair is cheaper than Samsung.

Is there any way to check SATA type on my computer? Thanks for your detailed recommend

May I ask you those who pick Samsung, why would you use then after the phone drama that taken place last year?
They have different divisions within the company... You think your SSD might explode too? :rolleyes:

Based on the company’s own investigation and independent scientific analysis of the issues by three consulting bodies, the overheating was caused by separate problems in batteries sourced from two different suppliers.

In the case of batteries sourced from Samsung SDI, there wasn’t enough room between the heat-sealed protective pouch around the battery and its internals. In the worst scenarios, that caused electrodes inside each battery to crimp, weaken the separator between the electrodes, and cause short circuiting.1

In the case of batteries sourced from Amperex Technology Limited, some cells were missing insulation tape, and some batteries had sharp protrusions inside the cell that led to damage to the separator between the anode and cathode. The batteries also had thin separators in general, which increased the risks of separator damage and short circuiting.

I would have said WD if it wasn't about SSDs(soon tho WD will release SSDs) but Samsung is a clear winner here.

But in reliability and performance Samsung EVO SSDs are the best.
